It’s on sale: 40% off Lands’ End Canvas — Both Lands’ End Canvas and mainline Lands’ End are offering 40% off any single item through the end of today. Use code LEAVES with PIN 9876. 
I received an email from reader Yaakov who bought this LEC navy blazer during their last sale and had a mini-review of it. A few things he noted:

First off, the lining is great. It’s half-lined in cotton, and it really makes a difference. The jacket feels very light in comparison to some other LE jackets I’ve tried.
The shoulders are unstructured, which is nice, especially for me. I fill out on the larger end of the 40R spectrum, so it looks pretty nice.
Buttons are not functional, so for some that’s a plus. (Sleeve length is nice on me, so wouldn’t have minded.) Buttons are a a bit of stark contrast to me — a “bright” brown — but for some again, that’ll be a plus.
My biggest problem with the jacket was the slight collar gap that it created between my shirt and the jacket. For some, (again) not a problem, but for nitpickers it might get annoying.

For what it’s worth in regards to collar gap, that happens for a variety of reasons. Mainly, your body just may not be suited for the jacket. Also, I’ve seen folks with shorter collar points (aka, “skinny” collars that are on-trend right now) experience collar gap quite frequently. So, the blazer might work out for you, but you’d never really know unless you try it on — them’s the breaks with online retail.
